Dan,
Head over to your neighbourhood auto parts and pick up fuel line and cut to fit your bike. You really don't need preformed lines. Plus they are expense. Save a few bucks and get the auto parts fuel line in the diameter you need. No muss no Fuss. Least expense and will do the job quite well!

Any idea what size the lines are? I need the ones going from the tank to the secondary.

Put a clamp on the lines close to the sub tank to stop the fuel flow from the upper main tank to the sub tank. Then remove the hoses from the sub tank. Measure the diameter of the inner hole to get the approximate size. The hoses are metric, but you can find something close at your auto parts store. You may want to go a tad smaller, due to it being stretched over the sub tanks nipple or you can cut farther up to get a better measurement piece. Just a wag (Wild Ass Guess) here: 3/8" and 1/4" inner diameters. As for estimated length, buy more than what you think you will need. Experience dictates. It is always better to have more than not enough. Cuz, then you won't have to drive back for a spicing kit and/or buy more hose. Check out the prices in the link below against your auto parts store prices per foot. That will also help you in which way to go. As for me, being frugal (cheap), I've always have gone auto parts for the hoses. Get fuel grade hoses however. You don't want to be to frugal! :lol:
